Reuters: "A Russian advertising agency has used an image resembling U.S. President Barack Obama to promote a new vanilla-and-chocolate ice cream, drawing the ire of human rights groups who say the ad is vulgar."
A product of Yekaterinburg's Ice Cream Plant No. 3 (if it's made by Ice Cream Plant No. 3, you know it has to be good!) the company is marketing its black on the outstide/white on the inside brand of ice cream under the slogan: "It's on everyone's lips -- the Dark is in the White!"
But is it racist?
